2 Month Checkup

Today was Christopher's 2 month check up and as you know it involves getting shots. I was so upset this morning just thinking about it that I gave myself a migraine. I was hoping to get into the doctors office, get the shots out of the way, and be on our by home shortly after but today was the "everyone decided to visit the doctor" day. We got in very quickly as usual but after seeing Dr. Stone we had to wait for about 45 minutes for Christopher's shots. Evidently there were a lot of little kids getting the flu vaccine today and it slowed down the progress of moving to the next patient quickly. There were twins next door and they SCREAMED like you would not believe. It actually made Christopher upset just hearing them. It was like he sensed that he was next. I had to wait outside because I couldn't handle seeing him get the shots so daddy stepped in to help out. We also found out that Christopher does have Colic. We were pretty sure he did have it but we just wanted Dr. Stone to confirm it. Every night at exactly 7:30 he screams like a banshee. It's hard not to get frustrated when there is nothing you can do to make him feel better especially when it usually lasts until 11 at night. Dr. Stone did prescribe him some medicine that might work although it usually only helps 30% of colic babies. We hope that it helps. He now weighs 12.5 lbs and is 23.5 in. Our little boy is growing very fast!
